Double Sword Wielding Man Killed by Police

I realize people are going to accuse me of being soft on the police, but I have to say this sounds like a legitimate shoot. When the story says a guy "lunged" at the police with a knife, I don't like it. But this:

Armando Aponte, 35, died from gunshots wounds when two police officers shot him as he charged them with swords raised in each hand.

I call that a lethal threat. How about you?

Please leave a comment.


  1. Objecting to the word "lunged"--how's the ol' mental health holding up there, Mikeb? You're getting weirder all the time.

  2. Maybe Jada will wander into this discussion and sagely add some misleading statistics on lunging deaths.

    As an aside, I did some lunges in the gym today. Nothing happened.
